(Columbia-Yale:1872; Princeton-Yale:1873; Columbia-Princeton:1874; Harvard-Yale: 1875; Penn-Princeton:1876; Columbia-Princeton:1877; Harvard-Princeton:1877; Columbia-Penn:1878; Penn-Yale:1879; Brown-Yale:1880; Harvard-Penn:1881; Dartmouth-Harvard:1882 and Dartmouth-Yale:1884). Penn's first victory over Princeton was in 1892 and after another Penn victory in 1894, the contest was suspended until 1935. Since the resumption of the series Penn has won 40 games and Princeton has won 36 games with one game ending in a tie (1942). Since the Ivy League was officially formed in 1956 Princeton has won 31 games and Penn has won 31 games. Penn and Princeton have played 109 times since 1876.
